A few of the recent pieces I’ve liked:

A special investigative series by several reporters at Center for Public Integiryt/iWatch News and NPR: Poisoned Places: Toxic Air, Neglected Communities

Deborah Blum at Speakeasy Science: About Pepper Spray (also see her followup, Fox News Food Products)
and, relatedly:
Judy Stone at the Scientific American Guest Blog: Should pepper spray be put on (clinical) trial?

Tracy Weber and Charles Ornstein at Pro Publica: Florida Sanctions Top Medicaid Prescribers — But Only After a Shove

And just in time for Thanksgiving travel and turkey consumption:

Simon Rogers at the Guardian Data Blog: US road accident casualties: every one mapped across America

Maryn McKenna at Superbug: More MRSA found in US Retail Meat

If you’re celebrating the holiday, travel safely, wash your hands before you eat, and have a happy Thanksgiving!
